  8. Estrogen (Uterine, renal)
  9. PPI/Pepcid/Octreotide (GI)

Warfarin/Vitamin K Deficiency

  1. FFP
  2. Vitamin K (+/- takes 24hrs to affect & 2wk to wear off)

Heparin/Lovenox

  1. Protamie (1mg IV Q100 U of heparin in previous 4hrs)
  2. Massive bleed --> cryoprecipitate (10 U IV), then FFP (& platelets, aminocaproic acid infusion if nec)

  2. PPI/pepcid/octreotide (variceal bleed)

  1. pRBCs (<8 Hb)
  2. Hemodialysis

DIC

(see also DIC)

  1. IVF
  2. PRBCs
  3. Vitamin K
  4. Folate (1mg IV)


If bleeding predominant DIC:

  1. FFP (2 U at a time)
  2. Cryoprecipitate (10 bags at a time)
  3. (Heparin is contraversial in thrombosis predominant DIC)
